Storage Made Easy

What is the Best RV Outdoor Storage Solution During Winter?

Nothing’s as enjoyable as traveling across the country with your family in an RV. For many, this relaxing vehicle getaway is the ultimate vacation - however, what happens once summer is over, and it’s time to park your RV until next year? You have to find a secure, long-term location to store your RV until the next road trip.

While RV’s are an exciting purchase for many, RV parking can be incredibly stressful for RV owners. That’s why today, we’re highlighting the best RV parking solutions and the benefits of choosing self-storage in East Calgary, so you feel confident storing your RV during the off-season.


The Best RV Outdoor Storage Solution 

An RV is a wise investment for many reasons, primarily because they’re a great way to have fun with the entire family. Instead of staying in hotels for summer vacations, everyone can sleep comfortably in their recreational vehicle, and when it’s time to go, determine their next destination. However, once things start to cool down, most RV owners are ready to park their RV for the season - the question is, where are you going to store it for the next six months?

While it’s tempting to store it at home, the best RV parking solution is keeping your RV at a local self-storage facility. A self-storage facility has the capacity and protection to keep your RV secure during the winter months, so you can have peace of mind that your RV will be ready for many more adventures the following year!


Outdoor RV Parking

If you’re inclined to keep your RV outdoors during the winter months, Bluebird offers outdoor RV parking as our storage solution in East Calgary. Keeping your RV in our outdoor lot is an excellent option for keeping your RV secure during the winter months! Plus, you don’t have to think about finding a storage unit large enough to accommodate your rig with outdoor RV parking.

Outdoor RV parking is ideal for individuals that need to keep their RV secure and don’t want to  Discuss your RV parking needs with your local Bluebird facility to see how we can help store your RV during the winter!

Our outdoor RV parking is also ideal for vehicles, boats, 5th wheels, and anything else that can be insured and registered!


Prep Your RV for Self-Storage

Before handing over your RV to a local storage facility near you, it’s essential to ready your vehicle for self-storage. Whether you choose to store your RV in an indoor storage unit or an outdoor storage lot, it’s wise to prepare your RV for storage so it stays in excellent shape for the months ahead. The most basic steps for RV parking prep include:

  • Removing additional food from your RV
  • Cleaning and prepping your fridge
  • Protecting your RV’s plumbing
  • Vacuuming and dusting your RV
  • Removing extra linens or supplies

Why Avoid At Home Storage?

As tempting as it is to store your RV at home, the reality is that it’s incredibly challenging to keep your RV parked in the driveway. Typically, your RV takes up valuable space, making it difficult to leave home. Also, parking it on the street can be a nuisance to neighbors, and they could report you to your local HOA for leaving a recreational vehicle parked for an extended period.

Additionally, leaving an RV in your backyard isn’t ideal to look at, nor is it kind to your backyard. An RV is simply too big to keep at home for an extended period, and it could be damaging to your RV and your home if left unattended for months on end. Storing your RV at a storage facility near you is the best long-term solution because your RV stays protected, and life at home can continue like usual.
